Chipotle Is Still Explaining To People What A Bay Leaf Is

Not everyone knows anything about cooking, but it’s still pretty astounding that so many people make the same mistake about the exact same ting over and over. Specifically, how many people don’t know what a bay leaf is, and report finding one in their food to Chipotle like they think there’s a sentient tree working in the kitchen. 

Some are more rude and less hopeful:

But Chipotle keeps patiently explaining what a bay leaf is—a spice that makes food delicious—and even apologizing:

Though others are less polite:

In fact, I’m not sure what’s funnier—people who don’t know what a bay leaf is, or people dragging the people who don’t know what bay leaves are:

But I guess complaining gets you more burritos, so there may be something behind this whining besides straight up ignorance:

Because these are pretty pathetic, even if you don’t know anything about cooking:

As stupid as it is, let’s look at the bright side:

22 Of The Worst 'Bad Teacher' Stories These Adults Still Remember

When you’re a kid, adults seem to have total control over your lives wherever you go. If you’re lucky, you have parents you love and can stand being around. But in school, you never know what you’re gonna get and it changes from period to period. Maybe a teacher will change your life for the better or maybe they’ll be nothing but an extremely hostile babysitter to 30 rambunctious middle schoolers.

If you had a bad run-in with a lousy teacher, it might haunt you forever, even when you’re a grown adult who has moved on to better things. For some reason, an authority figure saying or doing something mean sticks with you. This was proven true when Twitter user and Cartoon Network employee Marie Lum asked her followers if they had any anecdotes about things their teachers had done long ago that still bothered them today.

But first she shared hers:

Gasp! Horrible, but not surprising. Lots of other people had their own very specific, very annoying encounters with bad teachers, who did everything from tie them to the desk to insist they were spelling their own names wrong:

Any of these stories remind you of someone mean holding a ruler??

Man's New American Citizenship “Welcome Packet” Still Includes A Letter From President Obama

The Trump administration has built a reputation of stupidity and self incrimination.

You’d think that the White House would have changed its own records to reflect the current President, but according to Twitter user Aisha  Sultan, that is most definitely not the case.

However, it brought up some really bitter feelings for Twitter.

The letter itself is a standardized communication. However, it very explicitly reads “Sincerely, Barack Obama.”

Oh gosh PLEASE let these last few months be a giant episode of Punk’d.

It’s truly ominous, in an administration that has been outspoken against immigration from the campaign trail, that the letters of welcome for new citizens have not been updated.

Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come.

Woman's Ex Still Sends Loving Birthday Cards To Their Dog Every Year

Woman’s Ex Still Sends Loving Birthday Cards To Their Dog Every Year

I can’t imagine what it would be like to share custody of a child with an ex. I’m not saying that people shouldn’t ever get divorced or split up – as Louis C.K. said, no one’s ever left an amazing relationship just because. That would be horrible.

But I don’t know if I’d be a big enough person to put my pettiness and anger to the side in order to have a mature, separate relationship with my ex for the sake of our children.

Or if I had to share pets with them, either. Because pets are basically fluffier versions of children that you don’t have to start a college fund for, right?

Which is why I admire this girl’s ex so much.

Just look at this awesomeness.

He even included a touching message in the card.

“Hey Buddy,

Sorry for the late birthday gift. Work has been hectic. So I didn’t get a chance to get you something on time. Anyways, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you got spoiled on your special day. I also hope you’re doing well. Knowing you, I’m sure you haven’t slowed down and are just as much of a handful  now as you were when we first got you. Usually this is  the part where I tell you some story of how you got on my nerves like when you chewed up my credit card and then hid it. (I still have that card by the way) or how you did something incredibly adorable or funny like your first ever bath. But to be honest as precious as those memories are to me it’s the little thing I tend to think about the most.

Those times where me and you would just chill on the couch and watch TV. How you would be up every time I got up early in the morning to see me off to work. The play fights we would have together. Those pictures your mom would send me of that absolutely pathetic/adorable face you would make every time as you watched her leave for work. These are the things I will remember the most.

Watching you grow up from a puppy that fit in the palm of my hand to the overgrown big dog that you are now was nothing short of an adventure, and I loved every moment of it. There is honestly not one time where thinking of you has failed to put a smile on my face. I will forever be great grateful to you for that. Thank you. I wasn’t able to get you something for Christmas so I added a little extra to your card. Try not to destroy your new toys too quickly 🙂 I love you, Buddy. There isn’t a day that I don’t think of you. As always, continue to take care of yourself and your mom.

Continue to be  there for her like you were for me.

I miss you Buddy. See you when I see you.

Love, Dad.”

The touching gesture understandably got some serious love from Twitter.

Petco even reached out.

Apollo seems to be digging his adoration as well.

Such a good boy.

Man Drops His iPhone In Lake While Ice Fishing, Finds Out It Still Works Over A Year Later

It’s ice fishing season again, so strap on your boots, make sure your auger is working, and try to find a secure place for your phone so it doesn’t fall into the lake. That last part happened to Michael Guntrum last year while he was out ice fishing with a few friends.

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Guntrum relived the moments that led up to him becoming iPhoneless. “We were having negative-25-degree weather, so me and two buddies went ice fishing. We were sitting in our portable shanty, and I got a bite on my rod. I laid the phone on my lap, and it slipped off. Instead of landing flat in the snow, it hit its edge and rolled into the hole. I caught the fish — it was a blue gill — but it wasn’t worth it.”

And that was that. The lake was later drained due to a structural deficiency in its dam, and that’s when things took an interesting turn. Daniel Kalgren, a mechanical engineer by profession and part-time treasure hunter based solely on the fact that he owns a metal detector, took a ride to the area that used to be the lake and went for a walk in hopes of finding things that people tossed overboard.

When his metal detector started going off, he dug, and soon found Guntrum’s old iPhone 4 under 6 inches of mud. Not expecting much, he took it home, cleaned it, placed it in rice to dry, then charged the phone. After 2 days, it was alive.

Kalgren then looked up Guntrum’s number and sent him a picture of the phone. “I had just been talking about that lake early that day. It was eerie,” Guntram recollected. “He sent me a picture and asked, ‘Does this look familiar?’ and I recognized the screensaver.”

The phone’s case, made by Ottorbox, probably had a lot to do with the phone’s survival. Kalgren has an iPhone 6 himself, though in a LifeProof case, and seeing the screen of this old phone light up again has further indoctrinated strengthened his allegiance to Apple products.

Currently, the phone is in the hands of the United States Postal Service, making its way to Guntrum. When asked what he planned on doing with the phone, he simply replied, “My mom needs a smartphone, so I’ll give it to her.”
